This paper presents the development of finite element software for creep deformation and damage analysis of weldment. The development and benchmark test of the software under plane stress, plane strain, axisymmetric, and 3 dimensional cases were reported in previous work . This paper primarily consists of two parts: 1) the structure of the new FE software and the existing FE library applied in obtaining such computational tool via an approach for stress and field variable updating; 2) the development and validation of stress update; and 3) the development of validation of multi-material zones version. This paper contributes to the computational creep damage mechanics in general and particular to the design and the development of finite element software for creep damage analysis of multi-material zone.
